Do Entrepreneurs Think Different?

Have you ever wondered why some people succeed in their business activities and some people just can’t, no matter how hard they try? Why is it easier for ones to take risks, innovate, change the world, while others keep working from 9 to 5 for all of their lives and have never really made efforts to start on their own? The following infographic, created by the popular freelance platform – oDesk and based on a survey among 3 200 freelancers, gives an interesting view on the way entrepreneurs think. First of all, an entrepreneur is not every person who runs a business. There is a big difference between a businessman and an entrepreneur. The first one just does business, while the second one innovates, creates something new.

Not any entrepreneur runs a business, there are many who have this mindset and do many other things. But all of them think differently than the other people do. They are willing to take risks and to work for themselves. One of the main driving powers behind that behavior is freedom. Entrepreneurs are not only driven by passion but also they want to be free. 92% of the asked freelancers do freelancing because they can work where ever and 87% because they can work whenever. 69% are freelancers because they can work what they like and 64% has chosen this because they can travel while working.

According to the survey, 75% of the asked said that being an entrepreneur is tough, but the benefits outweigh the disadvantages big time.
